Residential geothermal heat pump systems are known for several things; among them, excellent reliability, superior comfort, quiet operation and environmentally friendly – or "green" attributes. However, one attribute that tends to garner the most attention is their ability to drastically reduce energy consumption and thereby save tremendous amounts of money in utility expenditures for their owners.
A very common question is "How much will I save if I install a geothermal heating and cooling system?"
Due to the uniqueness of each home, the way in which the occupants of the home use the heating and cooling system and the efficiency of the current heating and air conditioning system, the answer to this question can vary.
A typical rule of thumb is that a geothermal heat pump system will reduce heating and cooling costs by 40–60% and sometimes as much as 70%. For extra energy savings, geothermal heat pumps can be configured to connect your geothermal system to your water heater. When energy from the heat pump is not needed to heat the home, it’s diverted to your water heater. In fact, for most of the summer, you’ll be getting virtually free hot water! Another important cost saving aspect of geothermal heat pump systems is their longevity. According to the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), the appropriate service life for a ground source geothermal heat pump is 20 years or more – so a geothermal system’s lifespan is approximately 25% longer than that of a conventional heating and air conditioning system! The loop systems that serve the geothermal heat pump system last well beyond 20 years and are guaranteed for 55 years!
Unlike conventional heating and cooling systems, there is no outdoor unit, all mechanical components are located inside, therefore eliminating exposure to extreme weather and outdoor elements.
Geothermal heat pump systems harness the free and renewable energy of the earth. A geothermal heating and cooling system, sometimes called a ground–source heat pump, works on a simple premise: the earth below the "frost line" (usually about four feet down) is a constant temperature of about 50 degrees year round. Heat can be taken from the ground and transferred through a heat pump to the air in your home during the winter. Heat can also be transferred back into the ground during summer to cool your home.
The use of the earth’s constant temperature allows a geothermal heat pump system to reach efficiencies of up to 600% in extremely cold temperatures, more than double that of conventional heat pump systems!

We only use the best products! A core philosophy at Carney Plumbing Heating & Cooling is that there are 3 major critical components to a high quality and long lasting geothermal system, quality products, quality installation and quality design. When evaluating products that we recommend to homeowners, we are very thorough. Often, a product will be installed at our facility or in one of our homes long before we offer it to a customer. Why? We want to be sure that we’re recommending only the best to you and your family.
The difference is in the installation! Having a new geothermal heating system installed is much different than nearly every purchase that a homeowner will make for their home. The parts are shipped to us from our distributors, loaded onto our trucks and then assembled in your home. You will often hear a Carney Plumbing Heating & Cooling employee say "The most important day in a geothermal heat pump’s life is its first day." This is because it is critical that thorough and precise installation procedures are followed. Even the highest quality products must be assembled and installed properly in order to maximize energy savings, enhance system performance and ensure years of trouble free comfort.
How do we know what size geothermal heat pump will work? A major critical component to a high quality and long lasting geothermal system is the first step, system design – what size geothermal system is needed? Our friendly and experienced Comfort Specialists evaluate your home and perform engineering calculations to determine the proper sized geothermal system for your home. Factors include the age of the home, insulation levels, window quantity and quality, size of the home, orientation of the home, ceiling height and many, many more. It is not uncommon for two homes that appear nearly identical in the same neighborhood to have different heating and cooling requirements, we see it frequently. That’s why we never "guess or assume" what size geothermal system is right for your home. Our goal is to provide an energy efficient geothermal heat pump system that maximizes your comfort and minimizes your energy usage. That’s why each geothermal heat pump system that we install is custom designed for you and your home.
Do you know who’s in your home? Carney Plumbing Heating & Cooling employees must pass criminal background checks and random substance abuse tests. This helps ensure that the people that we send to your home are ones that you will be comfortable having there. We use floor saver "booties" and drop clothes to protect your home.
